General Mills Giveaway for New Year DEAD

I'm excited to share some great news for cereal lovers. This week General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children’s diets.

Other cereal benefits:

  • Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children’s diets.
  • Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.
  • More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.
Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.

For more information about kids and cereals, please visit Cereal Health and Wellness.

Right now if you visit here you will find a $1 off coupon for one of four General Mills cereals.

My Blogspark teamed up with General Mills & provided me with 2 free product coupons to give to one lucky blog follower! To get an entry for this giveaway leave a comment telling me which General Mills cereal is your favorite! (my favorite and my son's is Cocoa Puffs yet when I was a kid I loved boo berry and franken berry!)

Introduction to Rite Aid

I have never done deals at Rite Aid before. I did notice the shampoo deal for this week though, also the gift of savings is going on. I ran across this entry in a fellow blogger so I thought I would give it a try. Here is a little information about Rite Aid's rebate program to get you started:

Single Check Rebates (SCR): Many of the best deals come from their rebate program. Every month, Rite Aid comes out with a booklet that lists all of the rebates for the month. Throughout the month many of these items will often go on sale and be free, close to free, or a really good deal with rebate, sale, and coupon. One of the best things about the program is that if you use a coupon on the product, it will not be counted against you when you claim your rebate. You can end up making money this way!!

Here is an example:

Crest Toothpaste
*Sale: $2.49
*Rebate: $2.49
*Coupon: $1/1
= Spend $1.49, get $2.49 back - $1 Money Maker!!

Submitting your receipts: It is very simple to do online. Go to the Rite Aid website and click on the logo that says Single Check Rebates. Here is a link: Follow the instructions on how to enter your receipt. **DO NOT request your check until the month is over and you have entered all of your receipts. You can only request your check once and if you do it before the month is over, you will not be able to take advantage of any more deals.**

The check can be cashed or can be used at Rite Aid.
I will be doing match-ups each week to make it easier for you!! Stay tuned!

thank you spectacular savings I think I may actually try a rite aid deal this week!

~This is what I did this Weekend~

Made cookies with my Husband and son:

I also made Aarons teacher gifts:

I simply took a mug I got at walgreens and filled it with a baggie of marshmallows. The canning jar is filled with homemade hot chocolate from a fellow bargain hunters recipe. I also made whisks filled with chocolate kisses. Not pictured is white chocolate covered spoons. Here are the ideas.

Homemade Hot Chocolate

2 cups dry milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered cocoa (UNsweetened)
1/2 cup powdered coffee cream (like coffee mate)**

mix all together and store in air tight container. To enjoy mix 1/4cup cocoa mix with 8oz hot water,
add marshmallows if desired!

**Too make flavored hot chocolate use the flavored coffee mate! This is the time of year that holiday
flavors are out, peppermint and gingerbread. But the other flavors out there work great too
(my mom loved the hazelnut and vanilla caramel!) They have a creamy chocolate one that I used to make just
chocolate hot chocolate.

I made a couple big huge batches (I want to say you can get like 5 batches from a thing of coffee mate,
maybe more) and put in container with screw on lids from the dollar store. I typed up the directions on how
to mix and tied to the jars with a ribbon. I also made some singe serve ones in those plastic bags (the treat
type bags for cookies and such), just dumped the 1/4cup mix in and added a handful of mini marshmallows and
closed it up, added directions to add the whole bag to 8oz hot water and they looked cute! I saved some for me
and it tastes great!
